White House Calls IRS Investigation a ‘Conspiracy Theory’

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest implied the investigation into IRS targeting of conservative groups was simply a “conspiracy theory” during Friday’s briefing.

The probe has come back into the limelight after the agency revealed it lost two years worth of former tax-exemption chief’s Lois Lerner’s emails that would go to the heart of the case. Earnest was asked whether investigators or White House counsel had looked for emails between the White House and aides of Lerner.

“There have been 13 months of multiple congressional investigations, including 14 congressional hearings, 30 interviews with IRS employees, 50 written congressional requests, and 750,000 pages of documents, and all of that has done nothing to substantiate false Republican claims of a broader political conspiracy,” Earnest said. “So I don’t know if you’re floating another conspiracy or if this is a request from Republicans who are floating a conspiracy or what exactly the suggestion is. But the fact of the matter is we’ve cooperated extensively, and despite that cooperation, you know, we’ve seen continued allegations of Republican conspiracy theories that just never pan out.”...[/quote]

Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
